Halloween is that time of the year where you get to dress up and be whoever you want to be, even if it is just for a day. For kids, Halloween is all about dressing up all spooky and getting truckloads of candy, and for adults, Halloween is about dressing up and getting together with friends and partying minus the candy. And let’s be honest, this past year has been rough for all of us, especially the kiddos. They have been cooped up all year without not being able to go out and play or see their friends.
So, why not make this year’s Halloween extra special so that they get to enjoy their little hearts out. Halloween might be the only time where they get to wear what they actually want to wear and as parents, you have no choice but to listen to them. Now, when it comes to costumes here are some outfit inspo so that your tiny tots will be the star of the evening.
Halloween Costumes for Kids of All Ages
1. What’s Up Witches?
The witch costume is near and dear to many of us and there is clearly something mystical about dressing as a witch.

3. Monsters University
The 2001 Pixar movie is a classic and we have all dreamed about attending MU, so this would be a great time to introduce your child to this amazing movie which tells them about how the monsters that they are afraid of might be actually really nice.
